Cactus varieties for sale

Cactuses populations are generally stable. However, some species are declining because they are taken from the wild to be used as ornamental plants in landscaped areas.

Many cactuses vary in size depending on their species. The smallest cactus species is Blossfeldia liliputana, a plant that is less than 2.5 centimetres in diameter when fully grown. A cute mini Cactus! The tallest cactus, the Mexican Giant Cactus, can reach a height of up to 18 metres!

We would like to name a few cactus species that are also good for growing indoors. The first is the Opunta albispina cactus, also known as angel wing cactus or rabbit ear cactus, a member of the cactus family with evenly distributed clusters of hairs instead of sharp spines.

The second cactus you can keep in the house is the Rhipsalis. The Rhipsalis is also known as the coral cactus or mistletoe cactus. The plant belongs to the cactus family and is native to Africa, some islands in the Indian Ocean and South and Central America. Instead of growing in deserts, the plant grows in the tropics. Because of this, its care is slightly different than the care of the ‘normal’ cactus. This is a Cactus species with a lot of diversity, this diversity is mainly found in the stems. These vary from thin and long to broad and ribbed to curly and round.

The third cactus we do not want to keep from you is the Euphorbia Trigona Cactus and is one of those easy cactus specimens that make any grower feel like an expert. Also known as the cathedral plant, this cactus can grow quite tall with the right care. Small green leaves grow on the ridged stems between the spines, and if you plant it in well-drained soil and water it twice a month, it can live for decades.

Last but not least, Epiphyllum Anguliger, also called the saw cactus or lady of the night. The plant is called a saw cactus because of the special zigzag growth of its leaves. The Epiphyllum is a succulent that is often sold as a hanging plant.
